UMF art seniors present capstone exhibit

Nicholas Cole of Strong among the exhibitors

FARMINGTON — The University of Maine at Farmington senior art students are exhibiting the culmination of their capstone research with “Feint: UMF Art Seniors Exhibition.” Their work is on exhibit in the UMF Art Gallery and the Emery Community Arts Center through May 13.

The senior exhibition is a varied array of works exploring labor through rural objects, memory’s relationship with culture, uncanny childhood nostalgia, social alienation rooted in spectacle, the clarity of incoherence and the disintegration of nature through media. These concepts are investigated through a variety of media such as video, animation, sculpture and installation.

The senior student artists are Eric Berry of Weld, Samuel Burnell of Windham, Nicholas Cole of Strong, Elliott Eno of Dixfield, Cameron Morrell of Poland and Olivia Vanner of Washington.

Students will discuss their work on display in both campus locations during the University’s Symposium Day, Wednesday, April 25.
